Patch's Poll: Do You Support Medical Marijuana?

The bill allowing it is moving through the legislature

This week's all-encompassing Quinnipiac University poll showed that "Connecticut voters support - 68 percent to 27 percent - a proposal to allow adults to use marijuana for medical purposes, with a physician's prescription," according to a press release issued by the poll.

The General Assembly’s Judiciary Committee voted 35-8 in support of the bill Wednesday, reported CBS Connecticut.

What do you think? Are you in favor of adult use of marijuana with a doctor's prescription? Take our poll and add your thoughts in the comments.

If smoking pot helps a person with cancer feel better and relieve serious pain/stress, than yes, by all means legalize it, for medical purposes only. Recreational pot smoking can lead to drinking, pill popping not to mention lack of motivation, laziness., bad health... BTW usually people that are pot heads, smoke cigarettes as well, so making a case the pot smoking doesn't cause cancer is laughable!! Nothing good can come out of legalizing pot for the general public.

Since it has been proven to be an effective pain/anxiety relief for those suffering from various illness, there is no logical reason to oppose the medical use of Cannabis Small-mindedness and greed are the only reasons I can think of to keep it Taboo. I am opposed to total legalization simply because the morons of the world already have plenty of ways to get "zoned-out" "Stoned" and "wiped out"... They dont need more avenues of escape.

The "gateway drug" theory has been thoroughly debunked. Did you know 100% of marijuana smokers started with water? We should ban that too. http://healthland.time.com/2010/10/29/marijuna-as-a-gateway-drug-the-myth-that-will-not-die/ Also I know many cannabis and cigarette smokers and most of them do not use both, but one or the other. Not to mention that cannabis has been medically proven to reduce the chance of cancer in the first place, and actually make cancer cells undergo early death. If you're interested here is a 686 page document that lists the countless medicinal benefits (complete with actual studies) of cannabis/marijuana. Enjoy. www.letfreedomgrow.com/cmu/GrannysListJan2012.pdf

"I am opposed to total legalization simply because the morons of the world already have plenty of ways to get "zoned-out" "Stoned" and "wiped out"... They dont need more avenues of escape." Except there are already millions of people using this "escape" mechanism already, and its fueling drug violence across the border where 50K+ have died. Legalization is the ONLY route to at least to start curbing the violence, that is not to say the cartels will roll over and die after legalization. They will try to find another source of income, but right now drug trafficking, in particular cannabis, is extremely profitable.

I support recreational marijuana! Medical marijuana is but one part of a much bigger picture that involves hemp and the huge recreational agenda. Until the issues of economics, control, even political and social, marijuana will not be totally legalized as it needs to be. In many decriminalized states nothing has really changed at the street level. People are still going to jail for small amounts. Until possession and recreational use is LEGALIZED TOTALLY little actual progress is realized. Decriminalization is NOT legalization! Recreational possession and use needs to be totally legal - without penalties whatsoever!
